by educators and friends of education
that college-trained men earn more

I am a contractor in the building

wages paid in the building trades. For
example, in this section bricklayers

eight or nine-hour day; carpenters
get 70 to 80 cents per hour for a nine nine-hour
hour nine-hour day; the pay of painters is from
75 to 85 cents per hour, and plaster plasterers
ers plasterers get about as much or more pay
than any of the other vocations. Now,
the building trades are by no means
as highly paid as some of the other
callings. Some of the more highly
skilled of the steel workers are draw drawing
ing drawing a wage which would make a build building
ing building trades craftsman's salary look
like a poor school teacher's pay check
by comparison.
Now, how about your "white collar
man?" Do you know that there are
plenty of freight engineers drawing
more pay than the division superin superintendent
tendent superintendent they are working under? I
wonder how many college presidents
and professors in Florida are drawing
as much pay as a first-class carpenter
or a second-rate bricklayer. You would
have to look long to find a bank cash cashier

year as a plumber, and bookkeepers
would be glad to exchange pay en envelopes

did not have to change clothes and

Has education failed that these
things are so? I tell you, nay! The
fault is not in education but in the
kind of education. We have been
teaching our sons and daughters that

such as law. medicine, ministry, teach teaching,

not as far as the "Old South aristo aristocrat"
crat" aristocrat" Lowell tells about in one of his
"Biglow Papers," who was "as proud
as the Grand Turk; she never had a
relative that ever did a lick of work";
but somehow we have rather despised
honest toil as beneath the dignity of
a gentleman. As a result we have
been educating our children away
from the carpenter bench, the farm,
the brick pile and the cabinet shop,
and there is a dearth of skilled hand hand-craftsmen

friends know, I worked on some of
the big government jobs and I found
out that, after getting below the
superintendents, the highest paid men
in the offices drew far less money

carpenter, and the carpenter's pay en envelope

G rover Cleveland called "innocuous

to teach apprentices, or our boys are

lot of fellowrs who waste more ma material

I said, to teach them even if they

what is the use for a contractor to
take up his valuable time in teaching
an apprentice who is not bound and

The burden is up to the school. Our
educational system is a tradition
handed down from our grandfathers.
Our high school and college curricu curricu-lums

who could answer it yet it was a

When we get our proper senses our
schools will give loss attention to
"dead languages." and other dead
things, and will give more time to
live matters like teaching our boys
and girls to do things the world needs
to have done.

schools and colleges. Let us relegate

A writer in a big national weekly
writes feelingly of the terrible plight
of the "white collar men." Somehow,
I cannot squeeze out a tear for them
for they might have chosen some
more useful employment had they not
been afraid to soil their hands and
had they not been taught to despise
honest toil. The worker has come to
his own and this is as it should be.
The other day I overheard one of
society's .drones remark that if the
price of labor continued to rise he
would have to get a job and go to

For many years it has been the cus custom
tom custom of the ladies of the Presbyterian
church to give a New Year's enter entertainment,
tainment, entertainment, but the one this year, which
was the climax of them all, was a
measuring party given at the resi residence
dence residence of Mr. and Mrs. G. S. Scott
Wednesday evening.

The invitations, issued to this party j
several days preceding, were most
attractive, each bearing a clever verse
of poetry with a sack attached, invit inviting
ing inviting the guests to come after having
measured their height with four!

cents for each foot and two cents for
each extra inch, which was dropped
in the little bags provided.
Several columns could be devoted in
describing this unique affair and then
probably all would not be related;
however, the reporter is compelled to
touch upon it briefly.
As the guests arrived, each one

was presented with a tag with one

day of the week marked on one side,
and the following verse on the other
"Backward, turn backward
O time in your flight.
Make me a child again
Just for tonight."
This game was hilariously enjoyed
for some time. The day of the week
marked on the tag signified a stunt
that each one had to perform and
these are some of them:
Monday, a race; miniature tin horse
and wagon race. Dr. E. G. Peek and
Mr. M. A. Russeeli made a great hit
here, their height aiding them.
Tuesday, spelling bee. This was
more of a guessing contest. A word
being spelt was left to the person to
know when to stop it or to continue
on, as can-candy.
Wednesday, a hike. Fewest steps
acrosr two rooms.
Thursday, a straw-ride. Success to
the one who could rike a straw on
their finger.

L. M. Murray, Mrs. George MacKay,
Mrs. John Taylor, Mrs. Albert Gerig,
Mrs. W. W. Condon, Mrs. Frazier
and Mrs. R. B. Bullock. Messrs. G. S.

and Albert Gerig were among some
of the men who held positions as mer merry

wonderfully important talks among

The original parents of all our

ous inhabitants of the central Asian
and Mediterranean regions.
The pedigree of wheat, the most im important
portant important of all our cereals, is somewhat
obscure. It has varied to a greater de degree
gree degree from Its humble original, than any
other known artificial plant. Fortu Fortunately,

steps by which It has been developed
from what might at first sight appear
to be a very unlikely and ill-endowed
ancestor Indeed.
The English couch-grass, which
often proves such a troublesome weed
In our own country. Is represented
around the Mediterranean shores by
an allied genus of annual plants known
as goat-grass; and one of these weedy
goat-grasses has now been shown with
great probability to be the wild form
of our cultivated wheat. It is a small
dwarfish grass, with very petty seeds,
and not nearly so full a spike as the
cereals of agriculture.
When man first reappears in north northern
ern northern Europe, after the great Ice sheets
once more cleared away from the face
of the land, we find him growing and

using a rude form of wheat from the
earliest moment of his re-establishment
In the desolated plains. Among
the pile-villages of the Swiss lakes,
which were Inhabited by men of the
newer stone age, we find side-by side
with the polished flint axes and the
handmade pottery of the period sev several
eral several cereals raised by the lake-dwellers
on the neighboring mainland. The
charred seeds and water-logged
shocks disinterred from the ruins of
the villages include millet, barley and
several other grains ; but by far the
commonest among them is a peculiar
small form of wheat, which has been
named scientifically after the ancient
folk by whom it was used.
This lake-wheat, however, though it
dates back to the very beginning ot,
the period In Europe, cannot be con-;
sidered as the first variety developed
from the primitive goat-grass by the
earliest cultivators; it Is so superior in
character to the wild stock that It
must already have undergone a long
course of tillage and selection in more
genial climates,' and must have been
brought back to Europe In a compar comparatively
